Crossville Recognized By International Living Future Institute
We’re proud to announce that three of our tile collections have earned the prestigious Living Product Challenge Petal Certification, with 14 of 20 imperatives achieved in the seven categories.
The Living Product Challenge is a recognition program of the International Living Future Institute and is one of the world’s most advanced product sustainability standards. The framework encourages manufacturers to create products that are healthy and inspiring, and give more than they take across their life cycles.
The Living Product Challenge is organized into seven performance areas, known as Petals, with each area consisting of detailed requirements. Our Retro Active 2.0, Shades 2.0, and Color Blox 2.0 collections achieved full petals in the following:
- Water Petal – 2/2 for meeting requirements that included net positive for water
- Beauty Petal – 2/2 for meeting requirements that included beauty and spirit, inspiration and education, and positive handprinting
- Health Petal – 3/3 for meeting requirements that included red list, transparent material health, and human thriving
Using the Living Product Challenge framework, consumers can choose products that are healthy and free of toxins, know that manufacturers are socially responsible and respect the rights of workers, and are net positive to benefit both people and the environment. Manufacturers are choosing to certify their products as part of a commitment to a healthy world by following the highest standards of non-toxic, responsible material selection and processing.
